Very small percent of women in leadership, particularly beyond Manager-level (single-digit representation).

    Flexibility is really case-by-case and management-dependent.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Lots of opportunity for learning and being involved in amazing projects. For a lot of people, it's best as a jumping-off point, or to come to with established positioning. Not ideal for those who stay a long time as there's a tendency for us to be passed over. The issues are not overt, they are more subtly endemic.

Take a job at this place if you have no other offers. Only stay long enough to find another job. The place is a dead-end.

August 2016

This is a great company and provides many paths to advancement for those who are willing to work. It is easy to be lazy and just keep plodding along. But, if you are willing to work and have brains, the sky is the limit. Find mentors, go to events where leaders speak, be active.

August 2016

Don't work here especially as Minority. They low-ball you and there is no progression. You get 5 weeks of partial pay for maternity leave and will most likely come back to a different job with a bad boss that gives you crazy amount of work. Stay away

July 2016

As with all companies, your experience will vary by manager and team. I am fortunate that my team of twelve members has a fairly even distribution of men and women (seven women and five men) and our manager (male) tries to judge us objectively based on our performance, skills, and experience. Throughout the company, there are many women in VP and senior manager positions. There can still be more female leadership and diversity as the CEO is male and there is only one female among the next top three highest ranking positions. And all are white. Parental leave benefits are average. Employees still must use disability benefits for time off for childbirth. The culture here also discourages sabbaticals or leaves of absence for anything other than medical issues. There is still some derogatory language against women present in the workplace but it is very rare.

July 2016

In a worldwide company that's predominately staffed by males it's a tough race to win as far as promotions and recognition go. I work at one of the largest Lockheed campuses in the US so it's easy to get lost in the crowd if you're trying to make a name for yourself. Hundreds of people apply to each job requisition and the only way to move up is by who you know and not what you know.

Long hours are expected and company culture does not foster a safe nor intellectually challenging environment. The company has poor ethics in regards to the environment and is reluctant to change.
